Hardy Purvis has been training bird dogs in Central Texas for more than 30 years. He also runs a successful boarding and training facility Big Oaks Kennel and Dog Park Co. Hardy successfully completed his Top Tier K9 working dog trainer certification and has returned to the Austin area to expand his business serving dogs and their owners.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I give Top Tier K9 an 11”, Hardy said. “The working dog foundation program is amazing and the business development and project management processes I learned will help me take my business to the next level. The business insights I gleaned from the classes more than re-paid my investment in class curriculum, instruction, purchase of a puppy and two trips to Mississippi and Florida!"
“I was able to learn live on-line through an ‘application’ level of learning while I ran my business and stayed with my family. I then traveled for 2 short weeks to Madison Florida to prove that I had learned the required skills by demonstrating my amazing Malinois “Gerti” in tracking, scent detection, advanced obedience, and protection where I reached the ‘analysis’ level of learning”
Hardy added, “The business planning, and project management work I did with Jeff was worth its weight in gold. When you see that Top Tier K9 is the gold standard in the dog training industry, believe it” he added.
